Massucci's Take: Microsoft takes on Google with new search engine


It's hard to imagine ever calling Microsoft (MSFT) an ant in a world of giants. But when it comes to online search, Microsoft is that ant.

The software giant is expected to take on search Goliath Google (GOOG) as it shows off its new Web search engine next week at a technology conference, people familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal.

The idea is to better organize search results, so you don't spend as much time playing detective, wondering where the information you are looking for will be found.
